How'd She Became Famous
On June 9, the United Kingdom's Official Charts Company Announced a major milestone for their resident soul singer, Adele: Her sophomore album, 21, is the best-selling U.K. record of the decade so far. That the record has earned such a distinct honor is not entirely surprising; after all, 21 spent an Astonishing 23 Three Weeks at No. 1 and to date has sold 4,751,000 copies in the U.K. That's especially amazing when you consider that the U.K. only has a population of 64 Million — meaning that enough copies were sold that nearly 15% of the entire country could own the album.
In honor of this announcement, we look back at how Adele got her start, as well as the big ups and big downs that we have come to associate with the young musician's already legendary career.
Where She Lives Now With Her Baby Boy An Boyfriend
Adele has bought a five bedroom house in the upmarket west London neighbourhood.
The singer, who became a mum for the first time two weeks ago when she gave birth to a baby boy, is said to be planning a move to Notting Hill with her son and boyfriend Simon Konecki.
Adele and Simon are currently living in a house in Battersea, south west London.
